Camera Robotics on Display at CABSAT 2011

Vinten Radamec is participating in the CABSAT 2011 in an endeavor to show how easily studios can switch to camera robotics by incorporating automation into manually operated pedestals and heads.

They will also display small sized automated cameras to be used in parliaments and other government structures, so essentially a part of democratic governance. The company will exhibit a Vinten Osprey Elite studio pedestal, incorporating the Fusion Bolt on Height Drive and Fusion FH-100 robotic and manual head. The fixtures can be used with any Vinten or Sachtler non-skirted hand-operated pedestal, for accurate control over pan, slant and elevation when in automatic mode, while being able to switch to fully manual mode with the flip of a button.

Coupled with a HDVRC control system, it will become a powerful and flexible robotics controller. Complicated maneuvers and stock shots will be started through a touch-screen controller. It will be possible to trim the picture on the screen with the help of a joystick. This makes sure that the picture will have a perfect frame, even though the subjects are still in motion.  The internal networking helps the cameras to be monitored across many locations and remote controlling numerous cameras and studios all through a single controller. Besides all this, the system can also drive Autocam and Radamec products, besides specialized equipment like external cameras to record weather.

At the exhibition the company will showcase an Autocam HS-102P robotic pan and tilt head that will demonstrate its capability to work with heads manufactured even by outside companies. Its Legislative Control System (LCS) that is used in huge government buildings. This system can be controlled from one point and uses a wide array of robotic cameras. It can be connected either to a voting or audio system having speaker data. The in-built logistics in the speakers helps it identify the right camera for that particular speaker. A touch screen can help manual operation of the system. Both the robotic and manual versions make use of a joystick to cut and edit the image.
